it looks nice. if you want louder, take it to a muffler shop and have them cut off the middle resonator and weld a straight pipe on there.

btw that thing is going to melt that rear lip. its too close.

that would be a sweet setup. that is exactly what i have right now. jpipe, test pipe and the evo2 exhaust.

but i was talking about the resonator on the evo exhaust. there is a resonator after the 3rd cat. if you get rid of that it will get louder.

btw just give it sometime for the exhaust to break in and it should get louder. that is if you bought it new.

wait til you get the jpipe and the test pipe. it won't make the exhaust louder but the engine will sound mean. especially when the v-tech kicks in.

I do admit they are big, but for some reason they don't look that big or out of place on the car.. unlike the civics... maybe cause their tucked in i think they look good... like i said just wish they were a little louder, hope once they get broke in i'll get more sound

You ought to listen to the guy that said the position of the pipes is going to melt your rear lip. I mean, it looks like its essentially touching your HFP rear kit. That is going to melt quickly IMO unless you do something.

I bought the exhaust from grip motorsports, i paid $773 for the exhaust.

I don't really have to change anything right now with the exhaust since its not being drivin in the snow. Couldn't i just get longer rubber hangers in the back?

nice bikes.

saturday after i got the alignment, there was a muffler shop next door. so i asked them how much to cut off the middle resonator and replaced it with a pipe and they told me 60 bux. it was kinda pricey but i decided to do it.

let me just say its loud without the middle resonators. it sounds loud and mean.

Any noticable performance gains from the Greddy exhaust? Looks really tempting to get!

Would you guys suggest the evo 2 or sourceing the comp tech exhaust that they stoped production on?

Depends on what type of canister you want. The Greddy Evo 2 has pretty large canisters while the Comptech canisters look fairly stock.

Also, depends on what sound you like better. They essentially give the same power gains, so it comes down to appearance and sound preference in the end. I personally went with the Borla, mainly because it was the cheapest and if it's too quiet I can cut out the pre-muffler and resonator.

It needs a decent sized gap to avoid melting the cover. Half inch at least.

i have evo1 on my 6th gen coupe. one side sticks out slightly and over the years the heat from that muffler has caused spiderwebbing in the paint above it (oem lip). its hardly noticable though

Spiderwebbing in the paint might not be noticable to most people, but you can bet your azz that when you go to trade it in, the guy doing the apprasial is going to see it.

I got in a 2mph fender bender (a lady backed into me) and it caused spiderwebbing in my front bumper and it will cost $550 to repair/repaint. I know you already know this and I'm not trying to sound like a jerk, just saying that a professional will see that pretty quick.
